All of our YPA members have a story to share! Read below to meet Tristan Ritchie, a Real Estate Agent and Real Estate Investor. Born in Montreal, Tristan has lived in Sudbury for 15 years and enjoys being involved in the community, especially with the Young Professionals Association!
Tell us a bit about yourself:
I have been a YPA member for several years now, I am the one you will see at all of the events and am very much involved with young professionals here in Sudbury!
I have lived in Sudbury for the past 15 years. Born in Montreal and have moved to six different cities before arriving to the home of the Nickel. In my spare time, I enjoy being active at the gym, playing basketball and exploring the outdoors. I love anything business related where I can create more passive income.
Why did you become a YPA member?
I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. You can learn from ANYONE. Everyone I have met is like-minded – driven, focused, hard working and willing to learn from everyone around them. I love the atmosphere. The YPA always hosts creative events. I attend most of them so if you want to chat let me know!
What do you do for work?
I am a Real Estate Agent and Real Estate Investor. I love what I do. A day in my shoes is never the same, my schedule is always different depending on what my clients want and need. I am constantly searching, answering questions, contacting contractors and lawyers to facilitate the deal. If I am not dealing with a client I am working on marketing. I really enjoy creating content and giving away information to educate the public!
What is one piece of advice you would offer a young professional?
The best advice for any professional is to build strong valuable connections.
What is your favourite local business?
There are so many and it’s hard to choose just one. I support local as much as I can!
A few of my close friends’ businesses that would be in my top ones (sorry if I missed one) The Refinery, La Fromagerie, Positive Inception and Al’s Plumbing.
